Can you tell I went to a poetry class last night? :) Now, poetry class is over and math is about to begin.
A finite set of numbers is measurable. The length of my legs and the bredth of my armspan is also measurable. Not infinite. Infinity stretches forever in all directions while my eyes cannot even see beyond the horizon.
Piles of things undone lay around my house. Piles can burden and weary, but I choose to set them down and rest instead.
Unfinished work of greater magnitude: the work in my heart. Gentleness, patience, self-control. Though I seek the completion of this great project, the Father says it will come - at the end of time.
He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. Philippians 1:6
